For people in the creative industries, it can be important to make a distinction between the hand-crafted nature of their work and the serious intent behind their business, and I wanted to help make that clear. I wanted to create a design with very clear, simple iconography, for people who make things with their hands. So there’s a quill icon for writers, a whisk for bakers and so on.
